Candlelight Christian Core Curriculum (C4)
C4 consists of studies that help bring that Big Picture into focus. It will touch on a variety of subjects that impact how we live our life in Christ. What do I believe? Why do I believe that and can I defend my beliefs? What does the Bible say about: relationships, marriage, parenting, my job or business, my money, government and political issues, the postmodern world I live in today?
We envision that C4 will give even a new believer a solid foundation on which to build – a good overview of the Bible and how to apply it to the issues that face us each day.

GUEST worship Singer (all 4 services): Leon patillo
Sunday, October 2nd
Leon Patillo – American contemporary Christian singer, keyboardist, and evangelist!
When Leon was singing with the Latin rock and roll group, Santana, he would look out into the vast crowds of nameless, faceless people filling the auditorium—some coming just to party, some to be entertained, and some because it was the concert to attend. But some, Leon felt, were coming with heavy hearts, questioning their lives and searching for answers. At the height of his pop career with Santana, Leon left the group with a burning desire to satisfy those hungering hearts with music that would make a difference in their lives. Leon sees himself as an encourager—a vessel chosen, to bring joy into the hearts of many people.
GUEST SPEAKER: Dr. Tim clarey
Wednesday, October 12th
Dinner at 6 pm
Presentation at 6:45 pm
“Revealing the Secrets of the Ice Age”
Was there an Ice Age? If so, what caused it? Dr. Clarey reveals a biblical reason for the timing of the Ice Age and the dispersion from the Tower of Babel. The Ice Age was an essential ending to the global Flood. How would this event fit into a biblical timeline? Was there an ice age filled with strange creatures and lots of ice? An age of woolly mammoths and saber-toothed cats?
Dr. Tim Clarey received a Master of Science in Geology in 1984 from the University of Wyoming and a Master of Science in Hydrogeology in 1993 from Western Michigan University. His Ph.D. in Geology was received in 1996 from Western Michigan University. From 1984 to 1992, Dr. Clarey worked as an exploration geologist at Chevron USA, Inc., developing oil drilling prospects and analyzing assets and lease purchases. He was Full Professor and Geosciences Chair at Delta College in Michigan for 17 years before leaving in 2013 to join the science staff at the Institute for Creation Research, having earlier conducted research with ICR in its FAST program.
